In five days, gas prices have dropped more than 10-cents. On October 22 a regular gallon of gas was $3.25, 20-cents less than a week prior to then. Today, the price for the Los Angeles area averages out to $3.137. In fact, some stations, near and far, are changing out that 3 for a 2: "We've never seen local gas prices come down this fast in such a short period," Auto Club spokesperson Jeffrey Spring said last Friday. "Gas stations in Buena Park, Chula Vista, Visalia and a few other local cities are the first to post sub-$3 gas prices, and we could see many more over the next week if this decline continues."
